Good morning Ladies and wishing you a happy July ! I hope you are enjoying summertime. The sun is coming up this morning and it will be a lovely day. It has been a lovely week with some overnight rain helping to keep the grass and flowers blooming. I am up early as we are leaving this morning to visit my in-laws. We have a long weekend with the 4th of July on Monday.
Thanks for all the compliments on my photos of our basement project. Our daughter is settling into her new space and loving it. She has a few friends staying over as we speak , and they went swimming yesterday evening . Last Saturday I put a second coat on her closet doors , they are looking much better. In the afternoon my in-laws came and stayed overnight. We went to Saturday afternoon church. We then had a nice dinner and nice time together. On Sunday we had a special day out. Our niece was playing along with her marching band in a town south of here , Lake city which is on Lake Pepin , which also is on the Mississippi river. It is famous as it is where water skiing was invented! ( I did not do any skiing while i was there!) We used it to celebrate our summer family birthdays , having a nice picnic as we watched the parade. It was a lovely few hours together. We got to see our 15 month old nephew who is walking now ! He is growing so fast.
Lake Pepin . The shore opposite is Wisconsin.
Some of the Parade …………
Of course Monday came around again ! There was softball and Baseball practices and all some midweek games to play. We went over to our friends house , where they installed the same pool we got installed last August ! It looks really well. Our daughter had a double header game on Thursday and they won both games. Last night was a fun night to watch all the kids in the pool enjoying themselves . I did not go in myself . We sat back and watched .
Today as I said we are going to the in-laws camper Saturday into Sunday. They have a long term lease on a spot to put it by a lake 2 and a half hours from here. I am not sure if we will all stay overnight , but their house is a half hour away so we might go there and the kids stay with Grandma and Grandpa in the the camper! We will come back around Midday tomorrow . We are invited to our friends Brandon and Josette for an adults evening Sunday with a bonfire and games . I am not sure if we will make it, but hope to after the travelling. We might go to a local parade on the 4th in the morning , and will watch fireworks in the evening/night.
